Flavonoids such as anthocyanins, flavonols, Evaluation of commercial red fruit hydroxycinnamic acid derivatives, stilbenoids, flavan 3-ols, ellagic acid derivatives, and juice concentrates as ingredients other phenolic acids, were both identified and quantified in chokeberry, elderberry, for antioxidant functional juices. blackcurrant and redcurrant, strawberry, red grape, cherry, plum, and raspberry commercial juice concentrates.

Elderberry, chokeberry and blackcurrant concentrates were the richest in total phenolics and they had the strongest antioxidant capacity; therefore, these three juices may have huge interest as ingredients in the design of functional juices.

The anthocyanin profile identified cyanidin-3- glucoside as the primary (e.g., 90% of total) anthocyanin present in blackberry. Gel Antioxidant assessment of an filtration of crude extracts resulted in a 20-fold increase in total anthocyanin content, anthocyanin-enriched blackberry with no change in the proportion of cyanidin-3-glucoside. Antioxidant activities of both extract. the crude and anthocyanin-enriched blackberry extracts were determined using cell- free (ORAC) and cell-based (INT-407 intracellular) antioxidant assays. Antioxidant Food Chemistry 2007, 101, (3), activity, assessed by the ORAC assay, indicated a 7-fold increase in activity for the 1052-1058. anthocyanin-enriched fraction. Similar results were obtained for the anthocyanin- enriched extract using the intracellular antioxidant assay with INT-407 cells. Our results indicate that the anthocyanin content, and more specifically the presence of cyanidin-3- glucoside, in blackberry, contributes a major part of the antioxidant ability to suppress both peroxyl radical-induced chemical and intracellular oxidation.

The antioxidant capacity of the two blueberry species was about 3-fold higher than either strawberries or raspberries. However, there was an increase in the antioxidant capacity of strawberries and raspberries during storage at temperatures >0 degrees C, which was accompanied by increases in anthocyanins in strawberries and increases in anthocyanins and total phenolics in raspberries. Ascorbate content differed more than 5-fold among the four fruit species; on average, strawberries and raspberries had almost 4-times more ascorbate than highbush and lowbush blueberries. There were no ascorbate losses in strawberries or highbush blueberries during 8 days of storage at the various temperatures, but there were losses in the other two fruit species. Ascorbate made only a small contribution (0.4-9.4%) to the total antioxidant capacity of the fruit. The increase observed in antioxidant capacity through postharvest phenolic synthesis and metabolism suggested that commercially feasible technologies may be developed to enhance the health functionality of small fruit crops.

Osmotic treatment followed by a thermal treatment had a greater effect on anthocyanin loss than the thermal treatment alone. In contrast, the frozen samples did not show any significant decrease in anthocyanin level during three months of storage. Measurement of the antioxidant activity of anthocyanin extracts from blueberries showed there was no significant difference between fresh, dried, and frozen blueberries.

The fruit was hand-picked, stored on ice in the field, and frozen at –23oC in the laboratory that same afternoon. ACY was determined by the pH differential method. Anthocyanin pigments were separated by high pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC). TPH was determined via the Folin-Ciocalteu method. Antioxidant capacity was measured by oxygen radical absorbing capacity (ORAC). ACY for Ribes nigrum L. cultivars ranged from 128 to 411 mg ACY/100g fruit; for blackberries (Rubus hybrid) from 94 to 230 mg ACY/100g fruit; for black raspberries (Rubus niveus Thunb., R. occidentalis L., and R. leucodermis Douglas ex Torrey & A. Gray) from 230 to 627 mg ACY/100g fruit. Some blackcurrants were rich sources of ACY, TPH, and ORAC though gooseberries and jostaberries were not as rich as blackcurrants. Ribes valdivianum Phil., a Chilean native, had the highest TPH (1790 mg gallic acid/100g fruit) and ORAC 115 μ mol trolox equivalents/1g fruit, and R. occidentalis cv. Munger had the highest ACY (627 mg ACY/100g ) of all tested Ribes and Rubus genotypes. Rubus ursinus Cham. and Schldl. hybrid ‘Marion’ had the highest blackberry ACY (230 mg ACY/100g). ACY was highly correlated to TPH and ORAC in Rubus and Ribes. We suspect that other antioxidant compounds, such as Vitamin C, compose a significant part of TPH and antioxidant capacity in Ribes. Rubus and Ribes genotypes contain much higher ACY, TPH, and antioxidant capacities than are found in most other fruits and vegetables. Mullen, W.

Raspberry juice provided a better overall antioxidant protection towards lipid and protein oxidation compared to blackberry juice. The antioxidant activity of berry juices towards lipid oxidation varied with concentration. The antioxidant activity increased with increasing concentration of berry juices. In conclusion, red berry juice anthocyanins, as well as other phenolic compounds, act as antioxidants improving the oxidative stability of whey protein emulsions. However, the antioxidant protection is different towards protein and lipid oxidation, and is also affected by other components present.
